    Fun to see some current threads on the good old S5IS, whcih I still use and like.  I'd only point out that moving from it to a longer zoom can be a "slow lens" shock, with the aperture closing ...
  • It was extremely popular in its day. It's limits are the wide angle is not so wide, it shouldn't be shot over 200 ISO unless you like "grain", there is no jpeg correction for purple fringing (you ...
  • Thanks for the replies - Canon IS is certainly better than anything on phones, but I think users still find themselves playing manually with the ISO to achieve whatever shutter speed they need in ...
  • I did a quick search with no results. I know there are some CHDK insiders who respond here now and then: A couple of Android apps I use to enhance my phone camera now include "Hand Jitter ...
  • In "theory" the Shortcut button can be used for both CHDK and a shortcut, depending on length of press, very dicey in practice. But the CHDK button can always be reassigned depending on the model ...
  • I don't upgrade unless the camera will materially improve my results.  Even with my old SX10, I don't need another "sunny day zoomer" with a lot of Digic noise reduction for distant specks in the ...
  • Replied in Help
    I tried a couple of cameras and found it really isn't necessary to push in the card first before pulling it out - it will normally simply pull out.  The card may or may not be "trapped" in some ...
  • Starting with FZ200, to FZ1000 to this little TZ60: http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Panasonic_Lumix_DMC_TZ60_ZS40/verdict.shtml Canon does DIGIC-related functionality, navigation and out of ...
  • As above, not a feature I have used but I dimly recollected there is a CHDK menu setting for Auto ISO.  In fact I was quickly able to reset for a range of 80 to 600 ISO with no reason it wouldn't ...
  • Replied in Canon SX10 IS
    The asker may not have kept up with camera development and asks what in its day was a very pertinent question. I was involved in the now defunct but wonderful S5IS user forum when the SX10 came on ...
  • I've still got the SX10 in good shape. I never use Auto ISO and have no idea what it is supposed to do, so this interested me to experiment walking around the house and focusing in different lighting.
  • Always, a matter of taste, and sometime the particular use of the image. Compositionally and in terms of background I only really like the third one, which probably could be brightened / saturated ...
  • Don't own the camera, but the CHDK "hack" permits simultaneous RAW/DNG and JPEG shots, and has the advantage of retaining all the func/set settings for the JPEG, where Canon's "native" RAW/JPEG ...
  • I'd suggest the difference is less about the two software applications than about the choices / familiarity of the user in using them. You could have achieved pretty much the same result for ...
  • Very nice shot. FWIW, my experience is the CHDK RAW/DNG adds a lot of low light capability to non-RAW cameras that could only be replicated with "HDR" brackets and a lot of post-processing. Since ...
  • Sidewalk Sculpture - Queen West, Toronto Queen St. West, Toronto, yesterday.  I can vouch for authenticity, since the cement block on the left collapsed to the sidewalk seconds after I shot.  (Lots ...
  • People have their own criteria for RAW (in my case CHDK DNG) versus JPEG in Powershots.  I'd differentiate the question of Auto mode:  while the new Digic processors keep improving IS, autofocus, ...
  • You may be quite right. Though there's a fair amount of oil, gunk etc. in seawater that distilled water wouldn't clean. They're not really mutually exclusive. In fact, a virtue of the solvent is ...
  • I own SX10. With a couple of serious drink spills on computer keyboards I had excellent experience with electrical contact cleaner spray, available at shops like Radio Shack. I also had a bit of a ...
  • The thing about RAW is post-processing can do miracles with marginally underexposed images but nothing saves a white-out.  I think it's over-exposed with blown-out unrecoverable detail in the ...
